"Great news. Despite a 'vigorous' attempt by opposing counsel to argue vs my case, the judge specifically referred to your statement vs their expert. So THANK YOU, you were seen to be considerably more credible by the judge than the opposing expert's opinion re applicability to cause of the injury."
